june papertrey blog hop

 

It is that time of the month again.  And despite my busier schedule, I am happy to be able to participate.  I figure I needed to create a retirement card anyway, so why not use this adorable inspiration photo....
 

... along with this sketch....



and this colour combo (well, at least some of the colours).

 

And here is what I came up with... It is for a dear colleague of mine who is retiring from the company after more than 37 years of service.  Yes, 37 years! I am so happy for her and she has fabulous plans of travelling the world on this new phase of her life... hence the airplane!


 

I used various square dies from Papertrey, stamps (Mega Mixed Messages, Framed Out #1 and Little Hot Rod), paper (raspberry fizz, harvest gold and tropical teal), ink (true black, raspberry fizz) and cardstock (true black).  Lately, I find that I cannot create without putting some form of a black accent.  It is not any different with this card.  Love the impact a black colour brings to any project.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
